Happy 11th Blogoversary!

Eleven years of blogging -- who would have ever believed it?!? Not me! I started blogging as a young cat, just two years old, living in an apartment with Mom and Dad and that was it -- just the three of us. Shortly after I started blogging, Josie and Huggy Bear joined us, and then almost a year later Maggie completed our family. Even though I don't blog or visit as often as I used to or would like to, this community remains a very important part of who I am. I still remember when I got my first comment (William) and realized that I wasn't the only blogging cat out there. It is truly remarkable how a group of anonymous cats has turned into such a supportive group, and I am so thankful for that.

This is the first picture I posted on the blog (using Hello, I think). It's still my profile picture just because I like the tradition of it.

Jasper sleeping in the trash can
I used to love sleeping in the trash can on Dad's side of the bed. It really wasn't until Josie and HB came to live with us that I learned to snuggle.

Look how little he was...
It's hard to imagine Huggy Bear was ever this tiny.

The Trio
This was shortly after Josie and Huggy Bear came to live with us officially (they started as fosters).

Protective brother
And of course here's little Maggie when she first came to live with us.

First McKitten-Cat Family Photo
And one of the first "All Four of Us" pictures, which is rare indeed!

Jasper teaching Maggie how to sink
I don't post a lot of "cluttered countertop" pictures, but look how cute we are in the double sinks.

Up close and personal
I've had a lot of fun meeting so many other cats through the Cat Blogosphere, and I'm looking forward to many more years of cat blogging and meeting even more friends. (See what I did there? Looking ... hehe)

Thanks for all the years of support, and for visiting and reading!
